It reveals that it doesn't contain any Hangul Fonts for Korean such as nanum , unfonts-core , NotoSansKorean-hinted, etc...
Why did you do that? I must listen, mean it!

I have a temporary cure for this issue.
Installing language-selector-gnome solved this issue for me.
After installation of laguage-selector-gnome ,running /usr/share/applications/language-select.desktop
During running language support, Korean fonts will be installed automatically
Which means that "kde-l10n-ko" package doesn't have a Korean fonts in itself I guess

Hi, Jonathan, thanks for review.
But after read Park's report, I notice out trusty has same problem.
So I open merge proposal to kubuntu.trusty branch.
Could you please have a look at it, too?

Hi, Park.
I think we don't need to open new bug for ᅟ14.04.1 because both are same symptom caused by same reason.

I want to hear your opinion

Kubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 have the same issue of mesa
I think that it is the same issue with this report for Unity

without removing xserver-xorg-video-nouveau , there are crashed windows to the full of screen
plesase see the screentshot
I always remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau on first booting both of the the installation process, after installation process
and also installing nvidia-current works for it

Should I file another report for this?
then Can you help me to file a proper report by commenting right project to me here ?
